Still Not Done.

And with that, you're pretty much caught up on the status of my office makeover.  At this point I am beginning to think I may be blogging about the room makeover for the rest of my life.

So let me get you up to speed with what has happened since my last update (don't worry, it won't take long).

After laboring over paint color for about 2 weeks, I finally decide on an awesome Benjamin Moore gray "Pilgrim Haze".  Here's a screenshot of what it will look like in the room:

Great, right?  Not so fast.  Because the morning before I plan to buy the paint, I'm flipping through Southern Living magazine and I see this photo:

I love, love, love this room.  I love the fresh green walls with the clean white chairs and the sharp black table and the silver appliances and the sun streaming through the window and HELLO...this is my room.  I already have the white chairs and the green walls and I can have a black table and I have sun streaming through the windows (once I take down the hideous drapes, anyways).  So the green walls stay.  Decision made.

Which leads me to this:

Now before you wonder why on earth I would paint one wall blinding bright white, let me explain.  Dry erase paint (A.K.A. coolest paint treatment ever).  A whole wall of dry erase board.  I intend to write an entire blog post just on this paint-- I am that thrilled with it.

And lastly, this one is for my husband.  I am sure he will be thrilled to know I plan to move this into the office.  I'll keep you up to date on that conversation as well.

And there you have it.  You are officially caught up on the office makeover.  Told you it wouldn't take long.
